Experience True Liberation by Seeing Your Beauty, Femininity, and Freedom From Heaven’s Point of View
Has Christianity kept women trapped in the stone age? In many ways, yes; but this is not by God’s design. As society offers women opportunities to explore outer-space and govern nations, the church often stifles and limits them.
The tide is changing, though.
Amber Picota’s God’s Feminist Movement is a new covenant manifesto calling women to embrace their true identity in Christ and fulfill their destiny as revolutionaries who shape the course of history with the Kingdom of God. There is a powerful new feminist movement emerging in the body of Christ. It’s not politically driven and it’s not being championed by an uprising of angry “man-haters.”
Based on an intense study of Scripture, factoring in historical and contextual hermeneutics and original languages, Picota shares a practical, non-legalistic, and non-traditional (yet deeply Biblical) look at topics that women commonly face, such as:
- Dating and Modesty
- Female Leaders in the Church
- Submission in Marriage
- Beauty and Self-Image
Celebrate the power and beauty of womanhood. God has given you permission to change the world—by being you!
Break off religious traditions that keep women trapped in “old school” legalism and move beyond Christian clichés that minimize a woman’s true position in Christ!

Amber has done an exceptional job at communicating what it is to be a strong, passionate and powerful woman. She uses not only a wealth of personal experience but a strong biblical foundation to help guide you through what a true feminist movement should look like. I believe this book will help to break down common misconceptions in today's society concerning feminism as well as inspire many woman on their personal journey.

A New Look at Womanhood Embraced by a New Generation – A New Covenant Platform for Christian Women In her timely, Biblically based book “God’s Feminist Movement” Amber Picota redefines feminism for today’s generation of Christian women. She describes these women as “gracious, humble, wise, gentle yet strong, diligent, and pure in heart; revolutionaries who shape the course of history.” Her goal is to equip the reader, women and men, co-heirs in the body of Christ, to study the scriptures in light of the historical background, hermeneutics, and the original languages, to put aside preconceived concepts, and to discern for themselves the application of theses passages to make them applicable for a contemporary setting. The subjects of women in leadership, submission in marriage, headship, and the cost of trail blazing are especially relevant for today. These are important issues that are being faced in business, education, and politics, issues that cannot be minimized in church life. Picota urges the reader to lead the way in breaking away from traditional misconceptions, and trite clichés to claim the promises and follow the patterns of the New Covenant. I was deeply moved by Amber’s personal testimony of coming to Christ, the struggles that followed and the unique way that God worked in her spirit to a commitment of her life to fulfil His purpose. Amber writes from heartfelt convictions, her message is convincing, contagious, and commanding. “God’s Feminist Movement – Redefining “A Woman’s Place” from a Biblical Perspective” is important reading for pastors, organizational ministries, and lay leaders in the Church in this and future generations. A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
I was hesitant to read a book like this because if it’s title but I was also curious what Amber would say on this topic. The first chapter touches on this and addresses the issue one might have with the word. But honestly, after the first chapter I really didn’t feel like it was a “feminist” type of book. Don’t get me wrong, it had a lot of good content but I guess I felt like it was comparable to other books I have read. I really enjoyed hearing Amber’s story, she definitely has a Genesis 5020 story and God has redeemed her of so much. Totally loved hearing about that. If you are not sure about reading this book because of the title don’t let that stop you. It really is just a book about finding freedom as many women are held in bondage by so much. A copy of this book was given to me through The Book Club Network Inc. in exchange for an honest review.
God’s Feminist Movement is a great book no matter your age. In a world that is bombarded with messages about being a strong woman, it’s refreshing to read a book that teaches God’s perspective of strength. Highly recommend no matter the age.
"God's Feminist Movement" by author Amber Picota is published by Destiny Image. This paperback book is 172 pages and listed as a Women's Issues, Spiritual Growth, Leadership book. The cute cover with white, lacy, sparkly shoes states "Redefining a 'Woman's Place' from a biblical perspective." Author Picota writes a book for women that is biblically based. After the Foreward and Introduction there are nine chapters and then endnotes. Chapter two describes the difference between the old covenant and the new covenant. The author expressly asks readers not to skip this chapter. This is the foundation of her entire book. She writes we are now living under the New Covenant, a new law, which is that we love one another as He (Christ) loved us. She expresses the importance of love. It keeps us from sinning and helps us to live right. Love makes us want to do good things. The author tackles some tough issues in her book: purity, modesty, sexuality, dating, submission in marriage, and understanding headship. She uses bible verses, bible stories and examples to make her point. It is a scripturally based book. She shows how women were spoken about in leadership in the Bible. The Bible talks about Phoebe, a deacon of the church, Noah's wife and daughters-in-law, and Ruth among a others. The author also cautions in this same chapter that we must be careful not to take Bible verses out of context and misunderstand their meaning. She says this because bible verses have been erroneously taken out of context to keep women out of church leadership, she says. This is the first thing I have read by Amber Picota. I enjoyed her easy to understand writing style. Her book was well written. The chapters were organized and information well researched and biblically based. It was a lot of interesting information and things to ponder. I would recommend this book. I wish there were discussion questions at the end of the chapters or book. It would make a good women's group study or book club book. I rated it a 4 out of 5 stars. I received a copy of this book from Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.
God’s Feminist Movement is a topic that I wanted to study. Amber Picota is a wonderful author who delves into this topic and the surrounding topics Biblically. She comes from a stance of being willing to learn and teaches from a viewpoint of having been there. I received this book for free from The Book Club Network and the author in exchange for my honest review.
God's Feminist Movement, by Amber Picota, is a great book that helps set women free and helps equip them for ministry. The author goes into detail explaining the difference between the old covenant and the new covenant. We are living under the New Covenant and we are actually living under a new law, the law of Christ, which is that we love one another as He loved us. The author helps us to understand how important love is. Love helps us to do good, to not have other gods above God, to not cheat, steal or kill, Love fuels us to do good works. Using Bible verses and stories, the author points out that women in leadership was also spoken about in the Bible. She used 2 of my favorites, Ruth who pursued Boas and the prophetess Deborah. I really enjoyed reading this book. It shows us that women being a part of the church is not a new thing even though some people feel women do not belong in leadership in the church. The book also reaffirms that we should not take verses out of their context and use them in ways they were not intended as well as if something preached is not Biblical, it is not true. There is so much information in this little book. The author uses Bible verses and her life experiences to teach us such things as dressing, dating and submission in marriage. The parts that really made an impression on me is that the Bible does not tell us how to dress, other than not to wear men's clothing. Modesty is not about covering yourself up in clothing, modesty is a posture of the heart. However, if we dress to entice and arouse others, this is not love. I especially like the part that men are not animals and that we need to stop raising our boys believing the lie that they do not have the power to take their thoughts in control and turn them over to Christ. The one part that I truly appreciate the author writing is that our family is our first ministry. All to often the business of the world cause us to put our family and their needs down the priority list. I received a copy of this book from Book Club Network in exchange for an honest review.
